The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, the debut solo album from the former Fugees member, was selected as one of the 25 songs or albums to be inducted in this year’s Library of Congress.
Recordings selected for this prestigious honor must be at least 10 years old and must be “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”
Hill released the critically acclaimed and game-changing album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, in 1998 via Columbia Records. The LP, which spawned three hit singles ("Doo Wop (That Thing)", "Ex-Factor", and "Everything Is Everything"), debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Certified eight-times-platinum in the U.S., the project also won Hill 5 Grammy awards.
Congrats to Ms. Hill!
